TSK3 apparently does some FAT analysis/parsing.
See this extracted from
tsk3/fs/fatfs.c Contains the internal TSK FAT file system code to
handle basic file system processing for opening file system,
processing sectors, and directory entries
tsk3/fs/fatfs_dent.c Contains the internal TSK FAT file name processing code
tsk3/fs/fatfs_meta.c Contains the internal TSK FAT file system code to
handle metadata structures
TSK3 is command line I believe. (I've not used it.)
TSK3 is included in Sleuthkit, which is a pretty basic gui I believe
plus some wrappers.
Both TSK3 and Sleuthkit are in the more modern GUI: PTK.
All of the above is opensource I believe. (I normally use commercial
software for filesystem analysis, so I have not used any of the above.
The only commercial linux filesystem anal. tool that I know of is
"smart". http://www.asrdata.com/forensic-software/smart-for-linux/ I
haven't tried it in years, so I can't say how good/bad it is
